THE 0WEN5B0R0 FARM WAGON. 




To oiir TTriei]ds ai)d J^atrops. 



We desire to thank all our kind friends and customers for their liberal 
patronage and generous support, by means of which we have been enable 
to build up our business to its present proportion. We will not in this 
catalogue pretend to give a full list of all the goods we keep in stock. It 
has always been our aim to handle " the best goods rather than the cheapest'' 
and in this list we think we can show a line of specialties unsurpassed by 
any house in the country. 

We know that in these days of sharp competition, there is a strong desire 
on the part of the farmer to economize and buy at the lowest possible prices. 
This is well and should be done, but the " lowest priced goods are by no 
means the dieapest," in fact as a rule they turn out to cost the most. 
Therefore, do not be deluded into buying that class of goods, but buy good 
goods at fair prices : these we claim to have. 

In your persual through the following pages you note that we have 
made prices to compete with the times. 

To those who have not as yet favored ns with their orders. We want 
your trade, we will treat you right ;" no order too small or too much trouble, 
send us a trial order, and we will use our utmost care to please you. 

To onr old friends. We shall esteem it a great favor if all our old 
friends will continue to lend a hand by speaking a word for us now and than 
to their friends. We heartily thank you for past favors and hope for a con- 
tinuance of your orders, awaiting which, 
We remain, 

Yours to serve,

POLE BEANS. 

Add 15c. per quart extra if to be sent by mail. 
1 quart to 150 hills, 10 to 12 quarts to the acre. 

Culture. — Choose light soil, and make small hills 3 ft. 
apart, having previously spaded deeply and fertilized. 
Plant long poles two feet deep in the centre of the hills. 

Allot six beans to each hill, covering them barely 
beneath the surface, their eyes downward. Do not allow 
more than three to climb a pole, but remove extra plants 
to hills where less than three have sprouted. 

The Lima Rean is very delicate, and often fails to sprout 
from slight cause ; they should not be planted until the 
ground is warm, or started in hot-beds and transplanted.

very tender ; used without shell ; equally good in winter, 
if soaked 6 to 10 hours before cooking. Pint 15c. Quart

a 1 quart to 100 feet of drill ; 2 bushels to the acre. 

5 GREEN POD BUSH BEANS. 

J S'Earliest Red Valentine.— Is the favorite sort 
? for giowers who supply the early markets, because its 
growth is so rapid, and because it stands shipment per- 
fectly. Canners u.se them for their packing because they 
are stringless and always tender, besides having beautiful 
round pods. It is a heavy cropper, and ready to pick in 
about 40 days. Pt. 15c. Qt 25c. Pk. $1.25. "Bu. $4.50. 

Refugee Extra Early Round Green Pod.

attention to small orders as we do to large ones. 



POLK BEANS. DWARF BEAN 







ASPARAGUS. BEETS. 



This is a bush form of the well-known 
large White Lima Bean. It is very fixed 
in its bush character, growing to a uniform 
height of about twenty inches, and forming 
a circular bush two to two and a half feet 
in diameter, yielding from fiity to two 
hundred p"ds similar to those grown on 
the I arge White Lima Pole Beans, and 
contain as manv beans of the same delici- 
ous quality. (See cut) Pint 15c. Quart 
30c. Peck $1.75 Bushel $6.75.

early bean. None better. Has green pods 
Pint 15c. Quart 25c. Peck $1.25. Bush. 

-i-^l»rolific Cierman Wax.— Black 
l^Eeded. We are so thoroughly satisfied 
I 'with this improved strain of Black Wax 
that we have discarded the old stock alto- 
gether, this being more vigorous and far 
more productive, with a longer, whiter, 
m< re fleshy pod. Vines medium-sized, 
very vigorous and hardy. Flowers red- 
pish white or purple. Pods medium length 
borne well up among the foliage, curved, 
cylindrical, fleshy, and of a clear, waxy- 
white color, with long, slightly curved 
point, remain a long time in condition for 
use as bnaps. Beans small, oblong, jet 
black. No one can afford to plant the old 
Black Wax or Butter Bean, as this is much 
better in every respect. Pint 15c. Quart 
25c. Peck $1.50, Bushel #5. 50. 



ASPARAGUS. 

Culture. — Seed of Asparagus should be sown as early in the spring as the soil can 
be worked into good condition, as the seed germinates best in cool, moist wheather. 
Sow thinly in drilU and when well started thin out to three inches apart. In the fall or 
following spring transplant to permanent rows or beds, setting the plants one and one- 
half feet apart each way Soaking the seed for twenty-four hours in tepid or warm 
water before sowing will greatly assist germination. A "packet" contains about three 
hundred seeds, and an ounce fifteen hundred. 

Use two ounces of seed to 100 feet of row in seed bed ; two pounds will produce 
enough roots to set one acre of land, one and a half feet in row, rows four feet a part, 
or about eight thousand plants. One hundred plants will make a bed for an ordinary 
family.

Palmetto. — This asparagus is now quite extensively grown for New York and 
Philadelphia markets, where it sells at high prices, owning to its fine size and regularity. 
Although of S'outhern origin, it is equally well adapted to the North. Pkt. 5c. Oz. ioc.

BEETS. 




ECLIPSE BEET. 



Culture. — Seeds should be sown thinly 
in drills one-half to one inch in depth. 
Make the first sowing when the trees are 
starting out in leaf and continue with addi- 
tional plantings every three or four weeks 
until August 1st, so that a constant supply 
of fresh, tender roots may be had through- 
out the season. Owing to the spongy 
character of beet seed, the soil covering 
the seed should be packed firmly, either 
with the foot or roller, to insure proper 
germination. When the young plants are 
two or three inches in height they should 



P. MANN & CO., WASHINGTON, D. C. 



be thinned to stand four to six inches apart in the rows. Those pulled out are excellent 
when cooked lik e spinach, or may be transplanted to-other rows for an additional supply . 
Seed may be sown also early in a hot-bed and transplanted to the garden when the 
season is warm enough While we exercise the greatest care in selection of our crops 
for seed, the color of the flesh in the early'sorts will vary considerably with different 
soils and seasons. A "packet" contains about five hundred, and an ounce package 
two thousand seeds. Use one ounce to ioo feet of drill ; four pounds per acre, in rows 
three feet apart, ■ 




Burpee's Improved Blood Turnip Beet, 

The tops are neat and of urn form growth ; leaf stems and 
veins dark red. The roo-s are rich dark red in color. 
Flesh deep red, fine grain very sweet and retaining its 
blood-red color when cooked. For a constant sup >ly 
successive sowing of seed should be mad^ throughout the 



spring and early summer.

CABBAGE. 



CABBAGE. (Kopfkohl). 



Culture. — With a proper selection of 
varieties and a succession of planting this 
standard vegetable may be had in constant 
supply throughout th^ year in all pans of 
our country. In Middle and Northern 
States seed may be sown in hot-beds aiu' 
cold frames during February and March 
when the plants are well started, harden 
them off bv giving plenty of fresh air, am 
they will be ready to plant in garden o 1 
field in April. By sowing seed of the earl) 
varieties in September and October ana 
wintering the plants in cold frames, stocky, 
hardened plants may be had which can be 
set out the last of March. For fall and 
winter supply we sow seed in beds out- 
doors in June, transplaming to the field 
during July and the early part of August. 
S-ed should be sown very thinly in shallow 
drills so that the young plants will grow 
strong and stocky —as slender, long-stem- 
med plants are of little value. 

Selected Early Jersey Wake- 
field. — This is the very best conical 
headed .sort on the market, it is extra early 
and always sure to form fine solid heads. 

The old reliable; unfortunatel) the great 
demand for this sort has brought uron the 
market large quantities of coarse and in- 
ferior stock, which has tended to diminish 
the popularity of the sort ; but when pure 
home-grown st^ck, such as we offer, is 
used, it cannot fail to give perfect satis- 
faction. Pkt. 5c- ioc. Oz. 25c. % lb.

Early Summer. — This is without 
exception the best large Early Flat Head 
Cabbage. It is about two days later than 
the Jersey Wakefield and being over dou- 
ble the size makes it more desirable. 
Gardeners will fin I it a very profitable 
variety. Our stock is of the very best.

CELERY. (Sellerie). 

i oz. to icoo plants. 10 to 15 oz. to 
the acre. 

Culture — Celery seed may be sown 
during March or April in hot- beds, 
Prom middle of April or May seed may 
ht sown out-doors, for which purpose 
select a warm legation, and light rich 
soil. Thin until there is a clear space 
between the plants. When the plants 
are six in< hes high, draw them, trim 
tops, place them six inches apart in 
trenches. Shade until they begin to 
grow, and, if dry, water. Trenches 
should be three feet apart, four inches 
deep, and nine in« hes wide. Incorpor- 
ate plenty decayed manure at bottom 
of the irenchs to a further depth of one 
foot, which may be done with a spade. 
Most land, well enriched will give the 
best results. After September 1st, con- 
tinue to draw on both sides rich pul- 
verized soil to the stems, at intervals, 
as the growth of the plants indicates. 
This should not be done during rainy 
or hot weather. Keep soil from the 
heart of the plants. At the end of Oc- 
tober bury the whole in dirt, and dig 
up as desired for use.

Gold self- Blanching. — A 

most valuable veriety which partakes 
somewhat of the character of the celebrat- 
ed " White Plume " inasmuch as it does 
not require such high "banking up" as 



the ordinary sorts to be fit for the table. 
It simply needs a slighi earthing up or 
handling. It is of a beautiful waxy golden 
color, very solid and of rich nutty flavor.

same manner as cabbage, but requires 
cool, moist weather and well enriched 
soil to attain perfection. It is highly valu- 
ed for the mild delicate flavor of the white 
heads, 



Early Snowball. — Extensively 
advertised, this has deservedly attained 
great popularity, and is now extensively 
planted. Under favorable conditions 
nearly every plant will make a fine, solid 
head of good size. It is of dwarf habit, 
valuable both for early and late crops.

NEW YORK IMPROVED EGG PLANT. 



EGG PLANT. (Eierfruchi). 

Culture. —Sow in hot-beds, or in box or 
pots for indoor cultivation, early in spring. 
The plants being very tender must be 
sheltered fiom frost, but exposed so far as 
practicable to the sun and air. Early 
plants will be ready to transplant in May. 

Select light, rich soil, set plants distant 
five feet each way and keep well cultiva- 
ted. Where the plants are set, the soil 
should be highly enriched by incorporat- 
ing chicken manure some weeks previous.

seed and cover lightly. The plants should 
not stand closer than twelve inches. Keep 
the earth to the stems, destroy weeds and 
hoe liberally. 

To blanch the plants and destroy bitter- 
ness, when the leaves atiain sufficient 
length, tie them closely at the top, while 
perfectly dry. for the purpose of excluding 
light and moisture, or cover with flower

Culture. — For the 
growth of cucumbers 
hills are raised, standing 
five feet apart. _ Quite 
rich, sandy soil is best. 
If necessary enrich the 
hills with a mixture of 
sandy soil and strong 
rott e n manure. For 
early use. plant in May ; 
for pickling, plant in 
June or July. Eight or 
ten seeds should be al- 
lowed to each hill as the 
young plants are often 
destroyed by bugs. 

Soon as the plants at- 
tain vigor, thin them, 
leaving the three most 
promising if practicable 
water during the 
drought, keep soil loose 
and free of weeds.

supply. Plants may 
be grown on a tem- 
porary bed and trans- 
planted; or the seed 
may be sown where 
the lettuce is to ma- 
ture. For a perman- 
ent bed, select rich 
light soil, spade 
deeply, incorporate 
manure and lay off in 
drills two feet apart. 
Destroy weeds and 
hoe often. Seed may 
be sown in August 
and September, and 
plants treated as di- 
rected for cabbage 
plants, in which case 
a covering of straw

Xew Iceberg — Quick growing heads, j 
haid and handsome. Tender and true. 
There is no handsomer or more solid j 
Cabbage Lettuce in cultivation — in fact, it j 
is strikingly beautifil. The large, curly j 
leaves which cover the outside of the head 
are of a bright, light green. The unusually 
solidity of the heads is insured by the large, 
white main ribs of the leaves, each of ; 
which curving strongly into the centre, 
acts like a truss, making it impossible for j 
the leaves to open outward and expose the ; 
centre, which consequently, is thoroughly j 
blanched. It matters not whether in the | 
early spring or the hottest days of summer. : 
the leaves are always crisp and tender.

WATERMELON. (Wassermelone). 

Culture. — Prepare hills in the same manner as for musk melons, but to accommo- 
date the larger growth of vine the hills should be eight to nine feet apart each way. 
Plant the seed as soon as the temperature remains above sixty degrees all night, and 
when vines are well started thin out to one or two plants in a hill. When vines are 
three feet in length pinch off the tips to cause them to throw out laterals. 

Aclording to size of seeds, a " packet " contains from 60 to 140, an ounce from 240 to 
600. Use four ounces of seed to 100 hills ; three pounds per acre.

ONIONS. (Zwiebel). 

Culture. — To raise Onion Sets, during 
March or April select good soil and mark ; 
shallow drilfs one foot apart, along which 
sow seeds thickly. Keep the beds free j 
from weeds. In July, the bulbs will be the 
size of marbles, when they are taken up 
and spread thinly over a floor, securely 
protected from dampness, and exposed to 
the air. 

To raise large Onions, select a bed of 
rich soil, work it deeply and add decayed 
manure plentifully, level the bed and mark 
drills one inch deep and one foot apart. 
Place the roots of the sets about six inches 
apart in these drills. Keep the soil loose 
and free of weeds. 

Another process is sometimes adopted 
to raise Onions from the seed during one 
year. In the spring, prepare the bed as 
indicated and sow thinly along the drills. 
Be sure to have the soil very rich. Keep 
it free of weeds, hoe often and thin out if 
they crowed each other.

PARSNIPS. (Pastinate). 



i oz. will sow 100 ft. o' 
d ill, 5 lbs. to an acre. 

Culture. — Deep mel- 
1 >w soil is necessary for 
the full developement of 
the Hollow Crown Pars- 
n ; p, because the truest 
type of Hollow Crown 
will show a high Crown 
when grown in stiff soil. 

Sow as earl} in the 
spring as the weather 
will permit, in drills 15 in- 
ches apart, covering the 
seed % of an inch deep ; 
when well-up, thin out to 
5 or 6 inches apart in the 
rows. Parsnips are im- 
proved by frost, and it is a 
usual custom to take up in 
ihe fall a certain quantity 
for winter use, leaving the 
1 est in the ground until 
spring, to be dug as re- 
quired. Aside from the 
value of the parsnip as a 
table vegetable, it is also 
one of the best roots for 
cultivation for farm pur- 
poses, furnishing a very 
nourishing food, particu- 
larly adapted to and re- 
lished by dairy stock.

exposing the plants to the light, or air, as 
much as practicable. In six weeks they 
will be ready for transplanting. Select 
good soil and set the plants twelve inches 
apart in rows which :?hould be two feet 
apart. Cultivate with hoe, and draw soil 
to the stems. Seed may be sown out- 
doors in May.

PARSLEY. (Peteisille), 

Culture. — Seed should be sown thinlv 
in drills as early in the spring as the soil 
can be dug in fine loose condition, as it ger- 
minates best during cool moist weather. 
When well started thin out or transplant 
to stand six inches apart in the row. The 
dwarf, moss-curled varieties make beauti- 
ful edgings for the garden beds when 
planted along the walks, and furnishes or- 
namental foliage for garnishing as well as 
seasoning for table use. Roots may be 
taken up and planted in boxes or flower 
pots in the fall for winter use and placed 
in a sunny window in the kitchen. As 
plants run to seed early in the spring the 
second year, fresh plantings should be 
made each season. A "packet" contains 
about 3000, and an ounce 15,000 seeds.

PEAS. (Erbsen). 



Add 15c. per quart extra if to be sent by 
mail. 1 qt. for 100 ft. of dril, 2 bushels 
to the acre. 

Culture. — For early crop sow in Feb- 
ruary or March, as soon as the ground can 
be worked, and in succession as desired. 

Rich soil is the best. Make double rows, 
eight inches apart, then allow a clear space 
three feet or more between these and the 
next rows. Drop peas along these rows 
five inches apart, and between the rows 
plant brush to which the vines will cling. 
According to the growing tendencies of the 
different varieties, the brush or any other 
artificial support may be long or short. , 

For market crop sow in single rows 
three inches deep, and two or three feet 
apart, according to variety. 

First and Best.— It is very profita- 
ble for the gardener and shipper because 
it is very early, ripens uniformly, so that 
all the pods may be picked within seven 
weeks from the time of planting, and that 
at one picking. No brush or other support 
is required, as they seldom, under any cir- 
cumstances grow to exceed 20 inches in 
height. Pt. ioc. Quart 20c. Peck 90c.

True Alaska. — The earliest blue 
pea. The dark green color of the pods 
makes it extremely desirable as it can be 
carried long distances without losing 
color, which quality, combined with its 
eailiness and uniformity of ripening, makes 
it a most desirable pea for market garden- 
ers. Height two feet. Pt. ioc. Qt. 20c.

EXTRA EARLY WRINKLED PEAS. 

Pott's Exeelsior.— The very best

Vines are more \igorous and taller than 
the American Wonder, and the pods are 
one-third larger, containing often 6 to 8 
large peas, closely compacted together, 
and for sweetness and quality it has no 
superior. Pt. ioc. Qt. 20c. Peck $1.25.

American Wonder.— This variety 
stands unrivaled in point of productiveness 
flavor and quality, and is without except- 
ion the earliest wrinkled pea in cultivation. 
It is of dwarf and robust habit, growing 
from ten to fifteen inches high, and pro- 
duces a profusion of good sized and well 
filled pods of the finest flavor. Dry peas, 
medium size, wrinkled and flattened, pale 
green. Requires liberal fertilizing. Pt.

from early spring until last of September 
in deep, rich soil. Broadcast sowing is 
allowable, but drilling is more professional

TOMATO. (Liebesapfel). 




NEW STONE TOMATO. BEST FOR MAIN CROP. 



4 to 6 oz. (to trans- 



1 oz. to 1500 plants, 
plant), for an acre. 

Culture. — Seed may be started in hot- 
beds in Ma'chor sufficient plants for family 
use can be grown in pots or boxes in-doors. 
with very little trouble. 

Be particular to give plants the benefit of 
the fresh air and sun whenever judicious, for 
the purpose of hardening them : and cover 
with mats when necessary to prevent them 
from frosting. The two extremes of heat or 
cold are equally injurious. It is customary 
with the best gardeners to remove the planis 
from the hot- beds to the cold frames, allowing 
a distance of several inches between the 
plants. In May select and prepare the soil, 
and set the plants three feet apart each way. 
Hoe and draw earth to the stem. When the 
plants crowd, the fruit will be small. Have 
the soil very rich. For general crop sow from 
middle of April or during May, in open air, 
selecting good soil, in a location much ex- 
posed c to the sun and sheltered by a hill, fence 
or woods on the North. 

i¥-ew Stone. — This tomato ripens for

fruits, retaining its large size late in the 
season. It ripens with Acme and Per- 
fection, and is entirely free from ribbed 
and elongated fruit. It is very firm 
fleshed, has a tough skin and but few 
seeds. It seldom rots or cracks after a 
rain like many of the tender skinned 
sons. For shipping and early market 
it cannot be excelled, on account of sol- 
idty, toughness of skin, and especiall} 
its handsome color ; it can be picked

good keeper, and not subject to rot or 
crack on the vines. It is an excellent ship- 
per, and sold in Philadelphia markets at 
better price than any other variety offered 
at the same time. Ripens evenly to the 
stem, is a strong, healthy grower, not sub- 
ject to rust or blight, is an enormous crop- 
per, and produces until the vines are killed 
by frost, holding its size exceedingly well 
until the last picking. The quality is of 
the very best, and for cooking and slicing 
purposes it cannot be excelled. It is in 
every way a most desirably variety for 
market gardeners, and hence the name,

TURNIPS. (Steckrube.) 

\% to 2 lbs. to the acre. 

Culture. — Choose good sandy, pliant 
soil. Where the soil is poor, incorporate 
rotten manure. Choice determines be- 
tween sowing in drills and broadcast, but 
in respect to Ruta-Baga, experience in- 
clines to drills. Drills should be 18 inches 
apart, and the plants 8 or io inches dis- 
tant in the rows Thinning is equally ne- 
cessary when sown broadcast. Good cul- 
tivation will improve the crop. During 
November remove the crop in anticipation 
of frost, trim the leaves within one or two 
inches of the bulb, then store the turnips 
away in the cellar, covering freely with 
straw, and sheltering all with a covering 
of dry earth. The same precaution will 
protect them out-doors. "' Pile the turnips 
in hills, small at the top, sloping gradu- 
ally, and observe the same form with the 
covering to prevent the lodgement of 
moisture.

varieties of grasses, t ach of 
which has its season of 
beauty, and the result of 
this blending, is the pro- 
ducing of a sod that is n< t 
onl\ always evergreen and 
velvety in appearance but 
of the color and beauty of 
the emerald. 

Seeding is preferable 
to sodding, because it is 
cheaper, and will soon cov- 
er the earth with a luxuri- 
ant growth of thrifty grass 
and if fertilized spring and 
fall will last indefinitely. 

Frequent mowing pre- 
vents natural seeding, 
which, grasses annually 
supply in abundance. to re- 
store and thicken sod. 
Hence, when the grass is 
injured by tramping, or 
thinned by any other cause, the best and most natural method to restore its beauty is 
to sow seed plentifully Use two pounds of seed on a space 2ox.|.o. or 8oo square feet. 

To prepare the groun for seeding Lawn Grass, it should be plowed deeply, cro-s 
plowed, and the soil finely pulverized and enriched. Use fertilizer and avoid the dan- 
ger of an importation of seeds, the g owih of sorrel, weeds, etc., liable to be in barn-

INSECT DESTROYERS 




The great merit of this Insectcide lies in 
its non-poisonous properties. No danger 
need be apprehended by the person apply- 
ing it, nor will it injure animals, should 
they eat it — unless in large quantities. It 
does not render injurious the vegetables 
or fruits to which it is applied, and yet it is 
probably the best Insect Destroyer that 
has ever been offered. It is particularly 
useful for the prevention and destruction 
of Potato Bugs and all Worms and Insecs 
that infest our gardens.

THE MYERS IMPERIAL 

BRASS SPRAY PUMP 




This sprav pump is constructed entirely 
of brass,- a material that is not. affected by 
the poisonous arseniues used in different 
formulas for spraying fruit trees, vines and 
shrubbery It is so arranged that the 
labor of pumping is all done on the down- 
ward stroke of the piston and nothing on 
the up The effect of this operation while 
pumping is to hold the pump down. The 
foot rest steadies the ipump, holding it in 
the proper position. 

It is provided with a large air chamber, 
and has ball valves ; the pressure is held 
uniformly in the air chamber and on the 
hose, so that the nozzle throws a continu- 
ous spray, and is not affected by the move- 
ment of the plunger. The operator is en- 
abled to keep a constant pressure on the 
nozzle of from 50 to 100 pounds with very 
ordinary exertion. Will throw a solid 
stream 50 feet, and is of unusual value for 
washing windows, buggies, and extingu- 
ishing fires, sprinkling lawns, flowers, etc. 
For spraying is so arranged as to discharge 
a fine jet in the bottom of bucket, to keep 
the solution thoroughly mixed and agita- 
ted, a feature peculiar to this pump only, 
and a very necessary feature to a spray 
pump. Price $3.50.

Flexible Disc Harrow. 

O « THE DISC GANGS. 




The only Disc Harrow made having a spring pressure device, which alone places 
it far in advance of any competitor The greatest objection to all other disc harrows,

ingly simple, sowing from 2^ to 46 pounds of clover seed to acre or any intermediate 
quantity. Seeders that change quantity by a bolt in a series of holes cannot sow the 
intermediate quantities represented by the space between the holes. 

It is with renewed confidence that we offer the 6fc Star " Seeder having enjoyed

THE BEULE city 

FODDER AND ENSILAGE CUTTERS, 




The Belle City Fodder and Ensilage Cutter is acknowledged to be 

the King of Cutters, because its points of merit over all others are many. The 
first and a very important fact is, that this machine requires one-third less power than 
any other, doing one-third more work in same time. Second is the Safety Attachment, 
making all danger to the operator impossible. The Safety Attachment is a lever by 
which the operator can stop the feed rolls as quick as he can put his hand on same, 
also reverse the feed by this lever and set the feed rolls revolving backwards, cleaning 
the mouth of the cutter, should it become clogged without using his hands in the oper- 
aiion. 

All these changes — stopping feed rolls , reversing feed rolls, and changing length 
of cut, done without stopping the cutter or the power running it. We can all see how 
this lever attachment could be the means of saving a man's life or limb, as he has this 
cutter always under perfect control. 

Our irons are well finished : boxes for the shafting are babbitted, and when this 
machine is put together, it will run as smoothly as a lathe or other machinery. 

Our machines are finished better than any other cutters in the world, and are 
strong, durable and of great capacity, running with less power than any other, and can 
be run at great speed with perfect safety. 

We will send out our cutters to any responsible party, subject to their approval, or 
on trial with other cutters, providing the customer buys the machine during the best 
work

The Buckeye Combined Grain and Fertilizer Drill, as shown in the illustration, is

machine appeared in the market it has met with unbounded success, as all practical 
farmers saw at a glance that it supplies a want long felt unsatisfed— a want which, 
hitherto, all attempts to meet has been unavailing. This demand was for a drill which 
would sow all kinds of fertilizers successfully, and with satisfaction to the operator.
